As Nov. 8 inches closer, the Republican Party is perched on the precipice of making political history. According to a new poll from Fox Power Rankings, the GOP is on track to potentially seize up to 233 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives to Democrats’ projected 202.

Per RSBN, the U.S. Senate is also poised to obtain a hefty Republican majority, with Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., predicting last week that the GOP would likely net a 55-seat majority.

Incredibly, an analysis from Nate Cohn at the New York Times and “The Tilt” projected the following: “If every district finishes 7 points better than 2020 presidential election result (GOP+3) — Republicans would come away with 259 districts — an almost 𝟓𝟎-𝐬𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐠𝐚𝐢𝐧 and the LARGEST Republican majority since the Great Depression.”

Of course, the GOP has consistently polled highly on the Generic Congressional Ballot heading into the 2022 midterms, with a recent poll from NYT/Siena College projecting a four-point lead over Democrats.

Interactive Polls further summarized Generic Congressional Ballot polling:

Based on widespread polling, Cohn continued his analysis: “In other words, this range of a two- or three-point Republican environment is potentially consistent with anything from a victory for Democrats in the Senate to something that starts to feel a lot like a Republican rout.”

2022 has been a rough year for Americans who have struggled to pay their bills amid skyrocketing inflation and horrendous prices at the pump. In fact, record-breaking early voting in Georgia has indicated that midterm voters are enthusiastic and ready to get to the ballot box.

President Trump recently urged MAGA supporters to cast their ballots for Republicans in November to keep the American Dream alive during a rally in Robstown, Texas. “If you want to hear the American Dream and make it come true as we made it come true just a little while ago…go out and vote up and down the slate – vote for Republicans; good, great Republicans,” he said.

If polling and projections are any indication, November may usher in an era of Republican majority that hasn’t been seen in the U.S. in nearly 100 years.
